Medical Records in partnership with Crispy Nuggets Blog present the unreleased recordings of England's MIXED FEELINGS. Mixed Feelings grew up in Basildon which was also the home of Depeche Mode (in fact, they went to the same school). In 1981, SEAN COOPER met MARTIN GORE on holiday (around the time of "New Life"), and they instantly hit it off discussing synthesizers, school, teachers, etc. Martin was inspirational for Sean to follow his dream of making music. After a few bands, Sean started a band with longtime friend GEOFF with influences like old disco (Chic, etc) and a bit of Bauhaus, PIL, etc. for good measure. The first incarnation was called POLYPHONIC MOVEMENTS but changed to Mixed Feelings after their friends MARK, ALAN and PETE joined the band. They played shows at school and various locations until 1982 when they first entered a studio and recorded "Final Demand," "Because Of You," and "Ice Machine." These tracks received some local airplay, and they continued to play more gigs. A year later, they entered the studio again to record a few more tracks (one of which was "Another Place" which ended up on the 101 Record Compilation). Sadly, after a few more cheap recording sessions, the band split up in 1984. This LP is a collection of known recordings by Mixed Feelings. It is a brilliant snapshot into the minds and talent of a group of young musicians on a mission. Presented on high-quality 180-gram heavyweight vinyl. Limited Edition.
